A- pours hazy golden-orange with a small creamy white head, short retaining layer on top with no lace

S- citrus and pine hop aromas, honey, grainy husk, sweet doughy malt

T-citrusy hop with an herbal touch, big bready and doughy malt backbone with some grainy notes, honey flavors follow the aroma, finishes dry and malty with an herbal hop linger

M- medium bodied with a slightly viscous-yet-creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation with a bit of alcohol on the finish

O- very drinkable for the higher ABV, was a bit maltier than expected

I had this about an hour after a Zombie Dust which is certainly a tough act to follow. Looked good in the glass with a clear and bright golden color and nice two finger head that hung around a while and laced the glass all the way to the bottom. Hops hit the nose but no other notable hints. Unfortunately the taste was a disappointment - strong piney hops but no subtlety or other flavors while in the mouth, and a resinous bitter aftertaste. More of a chore to finish, not one that I enjoyed.

A - clear golden copper, thumb of off white head retained very nicely, some spotty lacing
S - pleasant citrus with mild hints of pine and florals, faint dry grain
T - citrus and dry earthy hops followed by light pine, multigrain savoury malt, finishes with citrus shining through
M - medium body, crisp and clean through the middle with a medium bitter and significant dryness to leave the palate clean
O - a nice hop mix and just in your face enough to make you sit up and take notice, still very drinkable, this is the kind of IPA I would love to have on tap locally
